Development of Online Tracker for the 2nd National Action Plan of the Open Government Partnership

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) is the local chapter of the global movement against corruption, committed to promoting good governance and eradicating corruption in Sri Lanka. TISL’s mission is to support the collective effort to eradicate corruption in order to build a future Sri Lanka which is equitable, peaceful and just. A key aspect of this vision is the Open Government Partnership.
The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is international platform that drives domestic policy reform which requires that governments work together with civil society in identifying national priorities for opening up government – making governments more transparent, accountable and responsive to citizens. All OGP participating governments are expected to develop National Action Plan (NAP) that specifies concrete commitments over a two‐year period.

Sri Lanka became a signatory to the Open Government Partnership (OGP) in October 2015, and created and implemented its first National Action Plan from July 2016 to June 2018. The progress of the 1st National Action Plan was monitored using an online tracker which can be accessed here http://www.tisrilanka.org/ogp/

Sri Lanka’s 2nd National Action Plan was passed by the Cabinet in January 2019 and consists of 14 commitments and 61 milestones to achieve these commitments. In order to assess the successful implementation of the second National Action Plan, TISL is seeking an individual or an organization to design an online tracker to monitor the implementation of the 14 commitments in the National Action Plan. The tracker is expected to be modeled after the existing OGP tracker with a few changes.

The selected resource person will need to design and create the tracker and should meet the following requirements –
• Develop and integrate the tracker into TISL’s exiting website (www.tisrilanka.org) and assume translation into 3 languages (English, Sinhala and Tamil).
• Provide an overview of the Open Government Partnership (TISL will provide the content).
• Have a system in which the tracker is updated automatically upon feedback from TISL, and reflect time last updated through a time stamp.
• Each commitment should have sub sections titled “milestones”. Each milestone should indicate present status using categories such as “complete” “underway” “pending” and “overdue”.
• Allow for narrative descriptions and updates.
• The tracker should have a search option by progress category and milestone.
• The webpage should be accessible from mobile phones, tablet devices, televisions and PCs.
• All final source code to be transferred to TISL at the end of development.
• The webpage should be innovative and creative using up-to-date technology.
• The tracker should also be accessible to persons with disabilities (Audio, Braille etc.)

Budget :
The Budget for this tracker should be between LKR 245,000/- and LKR 265,000/-

Duration :
The resource person is expected to create the tracker within two and a half months of acceptance of the proposal

Interested parties should send a proposal with a budget breakdown to [email protected] by 8th April 2019.

Call for ProposalsVideo on grand corruption for social media and web platforms

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) is the local chapter of the global movement against corruption, committed to promoting good governance and eradicating corruption in Sri Lanka. TISL’s mission is to support the collective effort to eradicate corruption to build a future Sri Lanka which is equitable, peaceful and just.

TISL is calling for proposals to develop a 2D or 3D short animated video (maximum 2 minutes long) that illustrates the nature of grand corruption, its definition and impact targeting the general public. The video should be available in English, Sinhala and Tamil and will be used in social media and other web-based platforms.

There is a pressing need to address the lack of awareness and understanding amongst the public in Sri Lanka regarding anti-corruption concepts such as grand corruption. The video is intended to bridge this gap, creatively enhancing knowledge in the concept of grand corruption which is new to Sri Lanka and its devastating impact on society.

TISL will provide the required expertise where ever required or requested. The products should be developed within a one-month period of awarding the contract.

The proposal should include:
• A detail outline as to how the concept of grand corruption will be communicated.
• A clear insight and approach
• Whether the animation will be 2D or 3D
• The duration of the video
• Proposed budget (The range of the cost must be between Rs. 400,000 and Rs. 450,000/=)
• Time-frame required to complete the assignment
• Samples of similar past campaigns

Note: the substance of the messages will be further developed with TISL’s input once the supplier is finalized.

Proposals along with budget details should be emailed to [email protected] by 12th March 2019.

Requirements of the Project
The project will require the contracting entity to develop a web tool or web page to be incorporated into rtiwatch.lk.

Specifications
• The webpage must accommodate all data provided by TISL (Example of data set provided below)
• The web tool must be built to complement the Sinhala, Tamil and English platforms on www.RTIwatch.lk
• The information must be made searchable in all three languages: Sinhala, Tamil and English.
• The information must also be segregated and presented based on the type of issue, scope of work and classification of the public authority (data to be provided to the developer under Phase 1).
• The end product should ideally incorporate a tracker that would provide TISL with information on the number and type of searches made, most visited Public Authorities, most commonly searched issues, most commonly used search words/ keywords and other similar information.

Quotations should include
• Proposed cost
• Estimate of time taken for completion of the project
• Proposed methodology as to how the project is to be carried out
